Oh you mean like Europe. Or what about France where they want to invoke a 75% tax rate on those paying the most taxes. Americans in this country already are submitting their citizenship because of Obamanomics, or whatever ya want to call it. You obviously missed Ms Thatcher's quote long ago. Way to go comrade!
Being a liberal is a mental illness just like homosexuality.

Will President Obama transform the greatest engine of freedom the world has ever known into a Stalin-like dictatorship? Or can the American people expose and rid themselves of this regime?

Is the most polarizing president in our history transforming us into Caracas or Beijing? Moscow or Tehran?

Trillions in new debt. His solution? Print more money, crippling American taxpayers and our children with unlimited debt while corrupt crony supporters continue to loot our economy.

His attorney general has shipped weapons to Mexico, turning our southern border into a war zone as gangs of drug thugs and human traffickers endanger the citizenry of America.

He's hobbled the most powerful military in the world, reducing the U.S. Navy to the smallest force since 1930 and rendering us unable to maintain our advanced weapons and technological advantages over the enemies at our gates.

And what does Obama do as Iran spews genocidal dictates, promising to "kill all Jews" and "annihilate Israel"? He abandons our ally and continues to push a "diplomatic" solution to this threat.

Obama is transforming us into a second-class nation, with communists and Islamists given free rein to expand their power.

As Obama accrues power with little opposition and his oppression creeps down from the top, the American people must stop the tyranny!

In yet another stunning attack on freedom of religion, President Barack Obama's Justice Department asked the Supreme Court last week to give the federal government the power to tell a church who its ministers will be.

The case involves a former teacher at Lutheran school, who along with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is pushing a claim that a Lutheran congregation should be forced to restore her ministry position.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State and Ameri

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations, and the American Center for Law and Justice are among those who have filed briefs supporting the Lutherans.

In 1999, the Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School in Redford, Mich., hired Cheryl Perich to be a lay teacher on a one-year contract in its kindergarten.

The next year, Perich became a "called" teacher at the school after she became a commissioned minister in the church.

"To receive a call, a candidate must be selected by a local church congregation," said a brief the church submitted to the Supreme Court that was prepared by lawyers at the Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty and Douglas Laycock of the University of Virginia Law School.

"At Hosanna-Tabor, the school board typically presents a choice of candidates to the congregation, and after prayerfully considering the candidates, the congregation extends a call via congregational vote," the brief said. "Once the call has been accepted, the candidate is installed in office via the public rite of 'commissioning,' and is recognized as a 'Minister of Religion, Commissioned'— also known as a 'commissioned minister.'"

As a minister in the school, Perich taught religious classes, led students in prayer and performed other religious tasks. She was also expected to integrate the teaching of the Lutheran faith into all so-called "secular" classes, including math, science, social studies and art.

In 2004, Perich was diagnosed with narcolepsy and was unable to teach the fall semester. In January 2005, when she could not return, the school hired another teacher to take her place during the spring.

Later that month, according to a brief filed by the Justice Department's Office of the Solicitor General, Perich informed the school's principal, Stacey Hoeft, via email that she would be able to return to work the following month.

The principal informed her they had already hired a replacement teacher for the rest of the year.

The congregation then voted to ask Perich for a "peaceful release from her call."

"'Peaceful release' is a religious act by which a congregation and a called minister agree to release one another from the mutual obligations of the call," says the brief submitted by the church.

"Peaceful releases are common, and they leave the called minister in good standing and eligible for a new call."

Perich declined to be peacefully released. In late February, she showed up at the school and met with Principal Hoeft.

"Later that day, Perich told Hoeft that if she were not reinstated, she would sue the church," said the church's brief. "Hoeft immediately asked Perich if that were what she really meant, because a lawsuit would clearly violate the church's conflict resolution policy applicable to called employees. Perich repeated the threat."

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod explained this teaching in its own brief: "St. Paul teaches in his first letter to the Corinthians that Christians should generally resolve their disputes internally without going to the secular courts for relief." For this reason, the church has developed procedures for settling internal disputes.

A few weeks after the meeting between Perich and Hoeft, the Hosanna-Tabor congregation voted to "rescind Perich's call" because she had threatened to sue the church contrary to the church's teaching.

Ya turned your back on a war vote yet fail to lay the true blame as to why we really are in the Middle East, only to call one that questions, an anti-semite. So, as the Indians say, "which is it gonna be, double tongued?"

So you think posting your homophobic drivel here all day is going to keep us "out of public schools and childrens minds"? What brilliant logic. You're truly Nobel material.

Please do not mistake election year pandering for actual concern! Obama could care less about LGBT people or issues, he's just looking for a few fools he can get votes from. The same way he throws other special-interest groups a few crumbs and expects support in November.

Don't fall for it, you're smarter than that!

Soros cut a $1 million check to America Votes, a group formed during the 2004 election that focuses on grassroots organizing and advocacy, and another $1 million to American Bridge, a research operation run by David Brock.
“As he has in the past, George is focusing his political giving in 2012 on grassroots organizing and holding conservatives accountable for the flawed policies they promote,” wrote Soros political adviser Michael Vachon in an email to donors on Monday night.“Both groups are part of a progressive infrastructure, or center left establishment, that plays an increasingly important role in elections.”
But, it may be where Soros and the Democracy Alliance are not giving money — at least not yet — that is the more important development, according to a number of Democratic strategists who pay close attention to the world of major donors.
If Soros and the Democracy Alliance decide not to use their deep pockets to fund Priorities USA Action, a super PAC formed by two former White House officials with the express purpose of running television ads in the presidential race this fall, it could make it difficult for Democrats to stay competitive on the TV airwaves.
At the end of March, Priorities USA Action had $5 million in the bank while American Crossroads, the major player in conservative outside money circles, had $24 million on hand.(Crossroads has pledged to spend upwards of $200 million on the presidential race — largely through television ads.)
That disparity coupled with Soros and the Democracy Alliance decision to fund things other than TV ads has some within the party worried.
Bill Burton, who runs Priorities USA Action, warned that “there is an ocean of half a billion dollars about to wash over President Obama and the things progressives really care about,” from conservative groups.“We are buuilding an organization to combat that. We got a job to do and we are going to do it.”
Added one senior party operative who closely monitors outside group spending.“If Democrats cannot be competitive with paid media, seats will be lost and the presidential race will be severely imbalanced, making it far harder to build anything longer term.”
Another senior party strategist took it even further, arguing that Soros’ decision to pass over Priorities is evidence of the ongoing riff between liberal donors and the Obama White House.
“Obama continues to be a disappointment to them,” said the source.“While they will vote for him given the alternative, they won’t be doing it with their pocketbook.

Leave it to democrats to pander for campaign $$$ with a wink and a nod promise to promote as part of their platform the trappings of a Homosexual agenda. Good for them. Nothing like alienating 70% of the voters in exchange for looking like you only care about things unimportant to the 70 %. Must be more of that Obama hopey/changy stuff.....
